In the present talk we will consider two big topics joined by the title of the presentation, namely, (i) oxide/ferromagnet systems and half-metallicity of thin films, and (ii) influence of dimensionality on magnetic properties of the system. In the first part we will consider example of magnetite as an object for searching of half-metallic properties and AlOx/Fe and MgO/Fe interfaces as widely studied systems that found broad application in nanotechnology. The newly discovered monolayer of graphite or boron nitride will be discussed in the framework of possible application in the devices on the basis of insulator/ferromagnet interface. The second part is mainly devoted to more fundamental objects (that in future can be used in different applications), where effect of reduced dimensionality plays a key role in magnetic properties. We will consider: example of 2D magnetism - ferromagnetic surface of paramagnetic bulk material, YCo2; cluster objects - self-assembled arrays of Mn-clusters on Au(111) surface and observation of γ - α transition in Mn; single magnetic atoms - observation of large orbital magnetic moment of Ce-atoms. In the end we will discuss recent experiments on investigation of electronic structure of monolayer of Mn12 molecular magnets. This now popular molecule can be taken as a prototype element that can be used in future quantum computers.
